Laguna Iberá Casa de Esteros is separated from the town center by the provincial route 40 therefore its location allows to be in a natural environment and feel the calm of the countryside while having the main square at walking distance.

We are Valeria and Leslie Cook, together we develop this small company dedicated to designing trips and special experiences. Since 1992 we work in ecotourism: we started developing new ventures in El Calafate in Estancia Alice (El Galpón del Glaciar); and between 2004 and 2016 we worked with Douglas Tompkins to shape his vision of Rincón del Socorro. From 2006 we formed a team with the valuable contribution of our partner Ana Laura R.E. who organizes and carries out our ideas in a real and possible way; she creates the link between our programs and those who want to live them.

The best thing of all these years in the wetlands has been to meet so many personalities of the Iberá. The native inhabitants of these lands treasure values and customs closely related to their environment; these should not be lost.

Our dream is to show the rich Iberian culture by the hand of its inhabitants and show the world the exuberant biodiversity of the wetlands. We believe that with the support of our visitors, the conservation of the Iberá is possible and its culture will endure over time.


Programs per-night include accommodation for 1 or more nights, in addition to activities and half or full board as the case may be. The Día de Esteros is a daily activity that includes walks and tours. It is ideal for guests who did not hire activities when planning their trip or who are passing through one of the Iberá portals.

Transportation to the departure points of the tours and activities is included. Inbound and outbound transportation to portals is never included in our programs but can be hired separately.

Iberá is a destination that can be visited all year round. The sighting of flora and fauna does not vary according to the seasons.
  • The intermediate seasons (autumn and spring) allow you to enjoy days not so long but with pleasant temperatures. Spring has the added beauty of flora in full bloom.
  • Summer is characterized by long days and high temperatures. Activities take place very early in the morning and in the afternoon but only when the sun is not too strong, so we avoid being outside in the hottest hours. From late morning to late afternoon, guests have time to rest and enjoy our swimming pool.
  • Winter has short days and low temperatures. Activities take place between 9 and 12 a.m. and from 2-3 p.m. until 5-6 p.m. in the afternoon. This allows us to take advantage of the most pleasant moments of temperatures to do activities. In the afternoon you can enjoy a hot tea in front of a fireplace.

Iberá is fed only on rainwater, more than 1200 mm per year. There is no particular rainy season, we can have rain at any time of the year.

The Wi-Fi connection throughout Iberá is very limited, often it does not work and even on some portals there is NO connection.

The cellular signal is unstable on most portals and on some paths there is NO signal.

We recommend bringing 2 pairs of shoes (one for trekking), several pairs of stockings, waterproof jacket, T-shirts and light clothing for the day, coat for the evenings, comfortable long pants, small backpack for outings to the countryside, repellent, sunscreen and hat. If you have them do not forget to bring binoculars.

We suggest the use of a therm and reusable cups. This will help reduce trash on the portal you visit.

We advise against bringing your pet to Iberá, activities cannot be done with pets and most accommodations do not accept them.
  • If you take any medications routinely or occasionally, please make sure you have them available during your trip.
  • Some portals do not have ATMs or service stations. Contact us for more information.
  • It is very important to respect the speed limits on the routes to avoid hitting wildlife.
